Hi All! I am new to here, but need some advice……. I have a ram lamb, who hasn’t yet sold, I know I need to seperate him from mum, but I think I may be too late! What is the worst that will happe? He is in with his mother, half sister and an unrelated one. Thanks!

The worst that will happen is that you'll have some unexpected lambs next Spring. The chances are that they'll be perfectly healthy. Just don't breed from any which are closely related.

Edit: Are any of the other females this year's lambs? If that's the case, you will want to keep a special eye on them, since they'll be lambing at a year old.
